What Car? says...
The Toyota C-HR occupies a slot in the Japanese firm's line-up that was unfilled for a surprisingly long time. It's similar in size to the Nissan Qashqai – the car that seems to get all the accolades for kicking off the family SUV craze.
Giving all the glory to the Qashqai is a bit unfair, actually, because the Toyota RAV4 got us interested in family SUVs more than a decade earlier, but over the years the RAV4 has grown into a quite large and expensive beast. In effect, the C-HR, which is now available only in hybrid form, fills the shoes handed down by the RAV4 as it evolved.
Read on over the next few pages and we'll tell you how the Toyota C-HR squares up against its main family SUV rivals – including the Nissan Qashqai, Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq – in all the important areas. We'll also explain which engines and trims make the most sense and suggest the options you might want to consider stumping up for.
